About 30 new officers are being recruited by Lincolnshire Police after the force secured an extra £1.8m.
The extra money has come from the Home Office and will also be used to fund more Community Support Officers.
After raising the police council tax precept and by using its reserves, the Lincolnshire force now says it has an extra £2.5m in its budget.
Marc Jones, Lincolnshire's Police and Crime Commissioner, says even more money could yet be secured.
He says: "We're still at the point of trying to make efficiency savings to meet the full target, but equally I've got the opportunity to bid for further grants.
"So, I'm still hopeful that we'll bring in more money than the savings we're having to make to balance the books."
